Extremely durable and light
Carbon-wood consists of 24 layer that are only 0,1 mm paper thin. Unique mix of carbon and colored wood
Carbon fibre is a popular material in the production of aircraft, bikes and sailboats because of the unique combination of lightness & strength. It is a rigid material that is very good at keeping its shape. It therefore lends itself perfectly to creating comfortable durable eyewear frames. Besides being tremendously light and strong, carbon fibre also has a raw & contemporary look that we fell in love with.
From this perspective Carbon fibre is the main feature of both the design and function of our Carbon frames.
As the first eyewear brand in the world, we have managed to blend carbon fibre and wood in a sunglasses frame. The front of the frames is constructed with 23 paper thin layers of carbon fibre to which we added flexible titanium temples and acetate tips ensuring optimal comfort for the wearer. A 0.3 mm top layer of wood adds a touch of natural warmth to the raw and cool carbon.
We have taken this technological design development even further by introducing colored wooden surfaces in the most beautiful color ways.
